It feels to me like this bug is a continuation (variation?) of this very old bug (feature?) of the logbook:

https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/logbook-applying-strange-rules-for-takeoff-and-landing/328757?u=nenenui

The logbooks definition of take-offs and landings is not based on the plain “physical reality” ("ground contact = YES, xzy-speed = zero for duration T) but on meeting (a sequence of?) high level abstract objectives (did you taxi according to ATC, did you use the proper runway … whatever).

Sadly it seems like Heli support did not result in a change of the logbook concept.

True it is variation. I wanted this problem to stand out and relate to helicopters.

In real life, a pilot can log his own logbook entries. We normally summarise it and sign it off with an Instructor when we do the license renewal.

Microsoft can easily fix this by letting us edit the fields. I know how many landings I did. So why can’t I fill it in myself? Problem solved.
